Hi there, I hope you're doing well now! 

After surgery, there is a possibility of having side-effects including:

  • numbness in the ear on the same side as the operation
  • loss of movement in the lower lip
  • loss of movement on one side of the tongue
  • loss of feeling on one side of the tongue
  • Swelling
  • difficulty bending your head forward (Physiotherapy can help to improve movement and prevent stiffness)

 Using your head, neck and shoulder muscles may help to reduce swelling.  You can do head & neck exercises. But, It is important to do the breathing exercises before and after the head and neck exercises. 

Best wishes!
